Abstract
In this paper I report new results in an ongoing study to address the problem of classification of radar targets when both phases and amplitudes are used under diverse angles of polarization ellipse and ellipticity is considered in this paper. Rayleigh quotient, Bhattacharyya, Divergence, Kolmogorov, Matusta, Kullback-Leibler distances, Bayesian Probability of Error, Divergence distance-based probability of error, Bhattacharyya distance-based probability of error and Receiver Operating Characteristic curves are derived for both amplitude-only and joint amplitude and phase on real synthetic aperture radar target signatures and shown that target separations and classification performances are, consistently, on the order of magnitudes better for the case of joint amplitude and phase case than the traditionally used amplitude-only signatures.
